Care Guide: How to Clean a Stanley Cup?
As sturdy as the Stanley cup may be, it’s certainly not invincible to bacteria and mold. That being said, to ensure that your cup is not only clean but also in good condition, there are certain things you need to be more meticulous about. Here’s how to give your jug the right kind of TLC.
The products you’re going to need are:
- gentle dish soap
- microfiber cloth
- brush for bottles
- a smaller brush for the straw
Start by dismantling your tumbler – remove the straw and the lid. The body of the cup is dishwasher safe, so you can just pop it in there if you don’t feel like washing it by hand. However, if you want to be more thorough, follow the steps below:
- Pour 2–3 drops of dish soap into the cup.
- Fill half of it with hot water.
- Use the bottle brush to clean the inside of the cup thoroughly.
- Leave the cup aside and let the soapy water sit in it for 10–15 minutes.
- Rinse the cup with hot water and let it air dry.
